Apotheke is one of two posh underground bars that I know in Chinatown. (The other one is Milk and Honey.) They have quite the hipster following.
Inside lies a apothecary decor. The waitresses are dress in speakeasy attire.
The drink menu is pretty cool. I like their "Lychee Three Ways". The drink is made of lychee-infused Vodka, fresh lychees and house-made lychee sour essence. DELISH!
Other drink favs include the Five Points, Saffron Sazerac, and House Absinthe.
When I'm driving, they make me a non alcoholic berry drink. That's yummy too but it's missing that kick.
The drinks here are definitely not cheap. A drink will run you about $15 not including a tip.
Their bartenders like to set drinks on fire at the bar which keeps their customers entertained while they wait.
I'll blog about Milk and Honey another time.... =)
